nothing about rolling them out. >> there was medicare, and they were infinitely smaller in scale. but medicare part d went terribly. seniors were losing their coverage. it looked really bad. it kind of resolved itself and worked out okay. before that, another expansion was passed of medicare. people have forgotten this. it was supposed to cover medigap problems. it was so unpopular ultimately with the people it was supposed to help, basically because of short-term confusion. they ended up repealing the program. >> this is not the anti-terror message that they were delivering. >> no, but it's going to be going badly at this stage. that's almost a given. but a year from now, will this all be worked out and we'll look back and say, well, those are the hinks you get in the rollout of a social program, or look back and say, you know, it was really screwed up. i don't think we know the answer. >> if you use the medicare exchanges as bell weather for insurance enrollment, a lot of republicans were against that. some of them, if not all of them, have come around because there's a very re
cash for democrats yelling at him earlier, also to pressure rick perry to expand medicare coverage to 1.5 million americans eligible. governor oops refused despite it would be fully funded by federal government through 2016 and partly thereafter. with largest number of uninsured residents, texas needs affordable care more than anyone. 6.2 or one in four lack health insurance ranking lone star state dead last in terms of coverage. none put a hitch in the step of governor perry's swagger. instead he rejected the idea of helping 1.5 million constituents and offered, indeed, in texas we simply need the flexibility to implement fundamental state specific reforms to our medicaid program instead of a one-size fits all washington mandate before it bankruptcy our state. governor perry would have perhaps been better served if he paraphrased blazing saddles, health care, we don't need no stinkin' health care. i totally bungled that but i hope everybody appreciated the comedic value. in terms of washington and the president going behind enemy lines, as it were, to texas where governor perry and ted
of liberalism. writes a two-page bill could have extended medicare and coverage by relying on the public market and straining to avoid the taint of big government, it's russian novel of social policy now totalling 20,202 cases. he goes on to talk about this as a test case for the kind of big policy they want. do wets a point where house democrats say no. what we need to do to build on this is do more with medicare, government side of reforms that have been clean. >> i think it can go either way. you're in a situation where, yeah, the rollout wasn't as smooth as folks had hoped. it's been frustrating not just for democrats but republicans. they have made that very clear. i have to go back to the fact they voted to repeal obama care 48 times. one of those votes could have been used to actually fix what they thought the problems might be. nobody on either side of the aisle really projected that this would happen. so now we're all supposed to get on board and support what would have been a good policy if the right policies were in place. one of the things since we're talking conspiracy theories. os

-- it's true. you're laughing but they never have. >> the president put reforms to medicaid -- medicare and social security on the table. >> he also has said i'll do it if you do your thing. i'll show mine if you show yours. i can remember in the '70s working for ed muskie, one of the real responsible people whereby mai 15th they had the rules followed. they had a bipartisan budget with republicans led by henry bellman on the minority side, ranking member there for oklahoma. ed muskie had a bipartisan budget with all the governmental functions ascribed their spending levels outlay, budget authority, deficit, outlay and revenue number by may 15th for the subsequent october 1st. so there could be appropriations passed all summer. then they had a second budget resolution locking it all in. they used to obey their own rules. when i say senate dysfunction, a bunch of senators four years didn't pass a budget. that's totally irresponsible. with respect theibilitiability. >> lets be clear. once they passed it they didn't want -- >> afraid they might do something on the debt ceiling. >> to what
people in red states who could have applied for medicare what it was like not to be able to get access to insurance. >> nobody has a program, an option. >> let me ask you, there are several competing areas here. i'm of the mind the website will get fixed hopefully by november 30th. i think the republicans are gradually accepting that idea as well. they are losing this idea of people losing their insurance. as key advisers noted those plans were crappy to begin with. but they are going to continue to get hammered on this issue of credibility and trustworthy. jay carney punted this question over the insurance market and said, the problem, which has always been the problem, insurance companies in that wild, wild west of the insurance market could arbitrarily cancel, change, downgrade those plans at any time and many of them have over the last several years. that's true. but it's not like the white house didn't know. >> by the way, i don't recall that being the applause line in the 500 speeches i had to sit through. i mean, this is clearly they were either misleading or weren't quite aware
employer, medicare and medicaid are not affected. aca as far as we know is the least did he instructive most market friendly tried and tested way to cover uninsured people. >> socialism. >> a couple of points here. i want to get to an anecdote in the book that sheds a little light on this. a professor, constitutional law scholar, intellectually most people think honest and sophisticated in his thinking, he has been remarkably overly simplistic when he explains it to the american people if he explained it at all. i wondered why that happened and what in the inner circle sort of went wrong. from the book you have this moment where you describe president obama confronting his staff after weeks and the sense of sort of personal -- that they had personally let the president down. i'd love for you to elaborate on this. i'll read the excerpt from the book. when we started having these meetings, obama said, i told you that i trusted everyone in the room. but now somebody has betrayed that trust. unless and until the person who did this comes to me, i'm going to be -- basically he cancels the me

care, i'm looking at folks with medicare and medicaid and that accounts for the vast majority of americans. and then for people who don't have any health insurance at all, obviously that didn't apply. my commitment to them was you're going to be able to get affordable heck for the first time. you have an individual market that accounts for 5% of the population. our working assumption was -- my working assumption was that the majority of those folks would find better policies at lower costs or the same costs in the marketpla marketplaces, and that the universe of folks who potentially would not find a better deal in the marketplaces, the grandfather clause would work sufficiently for them. and it didn't. again, that's on us. that's on me. that's why i'm trying to fix it. as i said earlier, i guess last week, and i will repeat, that's something i deeply regret because it's scary getting a cancellation notice. it is important to understand that out of that population, typically there is constant churn in that market. this market is not very stable and reliable for people. so peop
